Steve has been playing around with different stair layouts for several weeks now. Several years ago he tried to tell me that there were no other options for our stair layout. Well, at Christmas time, Steve came around and started playing around with moving the upstairs case to the hallway (bottom right drawing and second drawing) (then the basement stairs would be moved to the back of the house by the back kitchen door where the current upstairs case is)--> while I love this idea, the stairs would have still not been to code based on the curving of the case and the slope. They also would have only worked if an ~4/4' section would have been removed from the back bedroom which is currently our bedroom. While this is not devastating, I do not like the idea of cutting into either of our already small bedrooms.

|current basement stairs behind door and dining room built-in buffet just to right, stairs to attic just behind/left microwave|
|existing stairs to attic/future master bedroom/less than romantic and inviting...may I add the the railing wobbles as well|
